The Jennifer Crompton, the producer, and Chris McDevitt, the videographer, spent last Wednesday on the island. Jennifer interviewed Vicky Hardy, Sarah O’Connor, Molly Mansfield and Jeff Cullinane. Thanks to all of you for giving such splendid interviews. Chris recalled doing the camera work when Fritz Wetherbee filmed a segment on Star about five years ago. Chris shot a lot of extra film around the island; he clearly likes the place. Jennifer is related to the Haley’s of Smuttynose – she and Sarah has a lot to talk about. They had a wonderful time and were pleased with all the material they gathered.

Thanks to everyone who added their support for the film crew and a special thanks to Deskie Noah Braiterman who set up a room for the crew to videotape on very short notice.
